Home Remedies To Reduce Bloating

Abdominal bloating is when the belly feels tight and whole. It commonly occurs somewhere in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract due to an accumulation of gas. Bloating causes the abdomen to appear larger than usual, and maybe tender or painful. Retention of fluid within the body can also cause bloating.

The bloating can be avoided by using certain kitchen essentials, let’s take a look at certain products that can help combat bloating.
